On September 8th, thousands of events will be held in cities and towns around the world to bring awareness to climate change, help promote green living, learn about local vendors who can help make a difference and call on our local leaders to commit to building a fossil free world that works for all of us.
We have invited city officials and local candidates to discuss their position on environmental topics. There will be local providers of good and services to help you go green and make better decisions for yourself and the environment. Meet with representatives from social and environmental groups and attend talks with open Q&A sessions from experts and thought leaders in their field.
Join us Sept. 8th from 3-8 PM at the Rusty Mule for an inspiring and informational afternoon. The Rusty Mule is a family friendly outdoor venue situated on 3+ acres of heavily treed open land. There is a playscape and plenty of room for kids to run about (but not pets, sorry), food truck and a full service bar. There will be live music and representatives from social and environmental groups to learn more about all the possibilities to move the needle in the right direction.

The North American Development Bank (NADB) is proud to present the XXIII Border Energy Forum, which brings together local and state officials, private sector developers and investors, academics, large commercial users, and energy experts from the U.S. and Mexico. As the only U.S.-Mexico development bank, NADB has had the opportunity to participate in some of the most relevant clean energy projects developed in the last five years in the border region. NADB has financed close to US$1.5 billion for 35 projects representing total estimated investments of US$5.2 billion. Roughly, 2,548 MW of new generation capacity is being installed along the border.
The forum dialogue will center on such topics as energy prosperity, innovation, financing, the future of energy markets, cross-border opportunities along the U.S.-Mexico border, and how to continue building partnerships to advance the energy goals of both countries, which ultimately improve economic development and protect the environment.
